A Summer’s Worth of Blooms: Pen and ink flower illustrations.

Hi there! So, it’s no secret that I love flowers. I think they have the loveliest sense of design and that they settle into the prettiest shapes. From robust blooms to delicate little sprouts; they just delight me!

This spring, I attended an artist talk by Joan Linder. Seeing her intricate ink illustrations reminded me of how much I enjoyed working in ink. I love the boldness and the permanency of the lines and how every stroke is a statement that I can not take back.

So, I thought, wouldn’t it be a nice challenge to draw in ink? I know of many artists that do this phenomenally and I have always admired that. Below are flower ink illustrations that I have done this summer. They are done in my sketch pad with a micron pen. They are drawn from garden walks and flowers in my neighborhood. Enjoy!

 

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
